Our goal is to find new and exciting ways to help our members take care of business and to enjoy a few perks along the way for you and your family.
We have the complete list of all the benefits, along with how to take advantage of the discounts, in the member's section of our web site.
Are you celebrating a company milestone or have other newsworthy items to share? Let us know so we can send out a press release on your behalf. We have a database of over 150 (and growing) Wisconsin-based news media organizations - television, radio, newspapers, & magazines. We will help get the word out. Likewise, if you are ever published in the newspaper or appear on TV, let us know so we can share that on social media for you.
On the 15th of each month, we will be featuring a member of our association on both social media and our web site. If you would like to be featured for our member spotlight, please send a short bio along with a description of your business and your areas of specialization. Please also include a photo of yourself and some of your business (business photos can be at an auction or your facility). Make sure to also include your business contact information in case someone is looking for a referral.
